Dairy producers and industry personnel are invited to join us for our Winter Dairy Meeting Series this December. Each event in this series will feature a brief session on current industry topics, such as new updates to the FARM 4.0 program and dairy economics, followed by a training session geared toward helping dairy producers learn effective strategies for communicating with the public. Each program will begin at 10 a.m. and conclude after a visit to a local dairy in the afternoon. Lunch will be provided.
Presenters for this event include Dale Johnson, Farm Management Specialist at the University of Maryland Extension; Sarah Potts, Dairy and Beef Specialist at the University of Maryland Extension; Amy Yeiser Leslie and Emma Andrew-Swarthout from the American Dairy Association North East; and a representative from the Dairy FARM program. Registration for this event is FREE, but we ask participants to pre-register for planning purposes.
